Training on designing a data protection policy

Training on designing a data protection policy

The volunteer will be in charge of supporting DPA’s team in designing and implementing their data protection policy, encompassing IT security and data management.



In the rural northeast regions of Cambodia, support for isolated communities whose livelihoods rely on natural resources, such as forests, is limited. Nevertheless, it is crucial to provide assistance for the sustainable development of these communities to ensure the preservation of Cambodia’s rich biodiversity.

The Development and Partnership in Action (DPA) works to empower and support impoverished and vulnerable individuals, enhance community resilience, foster engagement and collaboration with relevant stakeholders, and advocate for an enabling environment for sustainable development. For instance, DPA assists local communities in the management of natural resources. Through one of its projects, it provides seedlings, small trees, and technical support to help communities restore deforested areas.

As part of their commitment to protecting vulnerable communities, DPA’s donors have mandated the organization to develop and implement a comprehensive data protection policy that encompasses IT security and data management.

The team is enthusiastic about fulfilling this requirement as it aligns with their core values. However, they have encountered challenges in finalizing the policy due to their limited expertise in this particular subject matter. They have made attempts to draft the policy independently but have been unable to complete it. Additionally, their efforts to seek technical expertise and support have thus far been unsuccessful.

Therefore, DPA is in need of assistance in designing and implementing its own data protection policy.
